i received from aschnebly last night! i got an awesome shot glass from her town - VEGAS. there was also another shot glass in there, but the post office wasn't nice to it and it arrived in many sharp pieces of glass. she also threw in some cute las vegas and fish (not together) charms so i can make even more wine charms! if my mac at home ever connects online i'll post pictures. Thanks again aschnelbly! you rock....

I got an AMAZING package from Taloola last night. She sent me part of a watercolor painting of an apple that her Grandmother painted! Isn't that special and generous?!! She even framed it. Thanks so much Taloola, you're an amazing swapper and I'm so happy to have some more original art for my walls.
I will get pictures eventually.. but I SUCK right now and am so overwhelmed that pictures just aren't happening  :-\ The picture is beautiful though and on my wall already!
Also note to anyone who might be sending to me, I'm going to be out of town from Thursday till the 1st so won't be able to acknowledge any packages and after tomorrow I'll probably be offline through Christmas if not longer. Never fear, I will return... thanks to all of you in advance.

Post by: RCKFELLA on December 21, 2005 01:19:07 PM
awww i wish i understood how the wishlist thing works . . . :'( so i could JOIN! heh. that necklace set is BEYOOTIFUL!!!!!


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: taloola on December 21, 2005 02:11:14 PM
rckfella, basicly you ask for approval.  and then you pick something off of somebody's list to craft for them.  THEN you can put up your list and others can craft your wishes. 

its very similar to the unconditional swaps except that you need to choose to craft for someone.  i think hertrigger chose to do it this way because in the unconditional swaps many people werent crafting for anyone else yet they were putting lists up every month. 

this one is quite fun!

Orange_sunset already received.  She asked me to post the picture for her.   I sent her a purple crossover scarf.



Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: orange_sunset on December 21, 2005 04:35:51 PM
Yay! You posted it!! I love the scarf to death! I'm becomming an addict- AND it maches the color of an awsome pair of handwarmers I got!


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: orange_sunset on December 21, 2005 04:37:35 PM
aaaaaaaaaand I'm so glad to see that Handlethis recieved the necklace! I'm glad you like it!! the card is actually stamped and handpainted both :D

I love making jewlery! ::)

I am glad that you like the scarf.  I initially make it as a christmas present, but I change my mind, ie I decide to make something else.  Then I read on your wish list that you would like a scarf and your fav. color is purple.  So I finish the scarf off and sent it to you instead.   :)

Oh, I love you taloola! I recieved my package today! ;D I love my pouch and I didn't hesitate to use it! Oh, please tell me you took pictures! I love the cross stitch thingie too. Soo cute... Oh and, I cant wait to use my shrinky dinks! You even included a cute little how-to book! The only reason I haven't used it yet is because I dont have my color pencils with me. I feel so craft deprived right now! All my stuff is in Greenville and the LYS is closed!   :'( :'(

Anyway, taloola, I love you grrl!

P.S. your writing is soo pretty! Do you right like that all the time? :o

i got some packages on christmas eve! so exciting.

pinkmafia sent me some mod-ish fabric, which i LOVE!

(she sent me the three on the right. i got the other stuff for christmas.)
i can't wait to make myself something with the white and green dots. THANK YOU!!!!

and i got another one from pink_dinosaur. she sent me 2 in one, cause she also had pins from the ongoing stuff i can make #1.

she sent me more knitting stuff. i love the yarn, and the needles are awesome. i love red. she also sent me cable needles, and some 'cabone rings.' i don't know what they're for, but i gotta read the booklet she sent! she also sent some disney things and stickers. thank you so much!!! i love it all.


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: TheDishclothQueen on December 26, 2005 11:25:48 AM
The rings are stitch markers, which come in pretty handy as soon as you make something harder than a scarf  :)

aha! makes sense. hahaha.

how do i use them though?


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: TheDishclothQueen on December 26, 2005 11:43:50 AM
You put them between stitches on the needles so you know where to decrease, increase, etc...

Post by: grrl82 on December 26, 2005 01:20:04 PM

what a cute pouch taloola!  :) i love the charleston patch/app.. is it just a piece of a patterned fabric or quoi? super cute! (and is that corduroy i see? hehe) the cross stitch is adorable too! how come i can't ever find cute cross stitch kits?

thanks seaofstars!  the app is just a cutout from the fabric i used for the lining...some vintage fabric i found at this cute little store here.  and yes, it is corduraoy!!! i heart corduroy!  makes sewing a straightline easier!  teehee!  ;)

i found the cross stitch thing at the same little store...i thought it was cute also...i love that store!  they go to estate sales and buy up all the vintage-y fabrics and findings, patterns, yarns etc and then sell it for super cheap!  i love it!  i will keep my eye out for more cute x-stitch patterns for ya!

Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: taloola on December 29, 2005 05:44:30 PM
it is called knittin'kitten (original i know)...it is on glisan street!  if you come maybe we could get together for coffee and a feild trip to the fun little store!  anyone else care to join us!  ;D

when you come, bring me poutine!!!!  jk...but i do miss it! mmmmmm poutine!  *drools*


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!

cheesy name, but that's okay! a friend of mine was telling me about some store that sells really random stuff that you can use for making stuff (she bought wallpaper samples? everything was really cheap? i forget.) apparently she bought me stuff when she was in portland a few weeks ago, but then greyhound lost her luggage for awhile, so once she gets it back, i'll get my surprise!

it would be great to get together!

but you don't want vancouver poutine, trust me! gross. and probably even grosser after it's sat in the car for 4 hours.

apparently there are a few places around that aren't bad, but mostly it's really nasty.


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: taloola on December 29, 2005 11:52:18 PM
i think in general, poutine is nasty bar food....thats why its so good.  the best i ever had was way out in the middle of nowhere after a day of fishin!  it was super!
it really would be fun to get together! 

Can I add to my wish list:  "A zippered pouch made by taloola"?  ;D
you may! i love making zippered pouches!

i am always in a bunch-o-swaps!  lately its just been the ongoing and wishlist swaps! i really love these swaps!  i really like being able to pick and make something that someone really wants and will put to good use!  with other swaps your not always sure that what you are making is right for that person.

Here are the goodies that RCKFELLA , aka Karen, sent to me:

What I asked for, a purse:


Aren't those butterflies just the most!?  I love 'em!  It's too snowy and muddy here now for me to use it (I don't want to get it dirty), but trust me, the minute it warms up, I'm gonna be using it non-stop!

And some extra goodies she sent, just cuz she's cool like that....

A zippered pouch, outside and in (and you'll notice it's already packed...)




And she sent me some super cute bobby-pins with crocheted flowers attached (please ignore the giant zit on my face that I forgot to cover up this morning...):


Again, thanks so much, Karen!  You rock!

Yep. The feathers were a lot longer, but I just cut off the tips and enclosed them in a metal finding (I don't know the name, but it's a piece of metal that you fold the two sides over to grip whatever you put inside and there's a little loop attached).

Here are two wishes that I sent out - both recipients asked me to post pictures (sorry they're so big - I can't figure out why they're always resized when I upload them!  :-\):

A decoupaged Paris frame for fallonmyknife.  The colors really are that subtle  ;)


And here's a set of pinup girl coasters for Lv2ScrpBk.  They were really difficult to photograph, but there premade black glass frame coasters.  The pictures are 2"x2" and covered in clear microbeads.



Both projects were so much fun - I'm glad you two like them!!,

No, I'm not that crazy  :P - I just put tacky glue over the pictures and dumped clear beads onto them.  I had been wanting to try it (there a post around here somewhere of magnets made the same way with comics).  It turns out so cool, so now I'll have to glue beads to everything in my house  ;D.

Thanks for the compliments!!,

Fantastic stuff in this gallery!  Life's about to get busier, and I've joined several other swaps, so I'm trying to stay out of this for now.  But this gallery makes it all so tempting!  The coasters are cool.  The stitch markers are cool.  Everything is great.

there is actually a website somewhere of a lady who makes a living putting beads on everything in the house LOL
Are you thinking of the artist Liza Lou?  I got to see her installation pieces at an art museum about five years ago, and I LOVED it.  She did an entire beaded kitchen, including beaded dust bunnies in the beaded dustpan, and beaded water flowing out of the beaded water faucet.  And she did a lifesize backyard scene, too:  beaded blades of grass, a beaded picnic table with spilled bead beer and beaded corn on the cob with melting bead butter.  It was absolutely amazing.  Google it, y'all.  You'll love it.

**Back to the gallery**  :)

So first off as I uploaded these photos I realized that I never posted a photo of the gorgeous apple watercolor Taloola sent me. I'm so sorry- and I'll repair that the next chance I get.
Here is the absoluteley amazing package that seaofstars sent me. She sent me the bedpillow I asked for and then included two fabulous extras. A cinnammon apple sachet and an adorable pouch containing citrus bath salts. It is the most wonderful package, so sweet thoughtful and generous and so completely my style. I was completely blown away and very touched and I opened it on a very lonely night- so it was MUCH NEEDED!
It made me cry in a happy way on a night when I'd already cried in a sad way a couple of times.
I wanted to post an action shot- and still will- but I kind of need to wash my sheets and make my bed first  :-[
Here's a photo for now:


I also got these wonderful stickers from Lv2ScrpBk along with a wonderful set of knitting note cards- which I absolutely adore and will definitely be put to use

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SO COMPLETELY SPOILING ME!!!!!!!!!!

i got my tee shirt from dharma_rebel a couple of days ago, and just got a chance to take a pic.
here it is:



the story: we had a group project to do last semester for school and somehow i always end up being the leader for these things. when we used to complain about our groups amongst friends, i would always explain that in a group setting, there is always an alpha dog.

thanks dharma_rebel, i love the shirt!

I have to show off my wonderful goodies from Goldfish Girl!

First my new green pixie hat, which I love!



I look cranky here but it's because I kept cutting the hat off and just getting weird close-ups of my face!



Isn't it pixielicious??

She also sent a bonus embroidery kit, with cherry blossoms, one of my favorite images!!



Elroy is thinking "Mmmm....string...." I think he likes it too!

THANKS, Emily!!!! You rock!!!  :-*

I'm glad you like how the stencil turned out hertrigger, but I am sorry i picked the wrong size shirt!  :-[  Now that the stencil is made, it'd be super easy to make another one for yah, so find a shirt that fits you perfect and measure it from armpit to armpit and pm me with that measurement and your address again! :-)  And then find someone you like to give the first one too, hehe  :P

i sat down to start trying, when i realized i hadnt posted yet!!! so i quickly took picutres so i could get back to making pretties!
she also sent two hooks three yarns a piece of cloth she started crocheting, and a crocheting magazine!
best of all she sent me this scarf!!! its made of two of the same yarns she gave me and has a huge flower at the bottom!

She paid me to make her Panta, and with her payment she sent me these beauties (way better than the $$ in my opinion!):

I nearly forgot!  Taloola sent me a couple of the most adorable zippered pouches.  I haven't gotten pictures taken, yet, so if you took any Taloola, go ahead and post them.  One is blue with a brown gingham "pocket" on the front, with the same used for the lining.  The other is brown with a pink vintage-y looking fabric heart on the front, with the same used for the lining.  The pink has a boy and girl playing see-saw on it. 

They are SO cute, and I immediately stuffed them both!  Thanks so much!

you are so welcome!  i am glad you like them!  i saw that you are "the vintage/thrift store master"...so i made both pouches with thrift and vintage fabrics!

here is the blue one with the gingham lining and "pocket"


shows a little of the lining


and the brown with pink lining and applique


and shows a bit of the lining...

I do love vintage fabrics!  I'm so in love with the pink fabric you used; it's adorable.  I stalk second hand stores, hoping to find fabric.  At least here, people understand.  My bf just looks at me like I'm on crack ;)

Snacker received, and asked me to post photos of her new circular needle case.



Its red and black, felted, with needle felted details to match the awesome lining fabric I found. (Which I did the whole thing around)



There is also a small plastic snap on it.  I tried to find something better, but my only other option for something tough enough was magnetic, and when I started to try it out, it attached to my metal needles and that didn't make much sense. Now that she's received, I'm going to post my first failed attempt that I think I recovered.  I learned bags are best if you felt them AFTER assembly.  Before and there is sometimes no amount of blocking that will get the shape you knit them in...

It is so beautiful!!!  Thank you so much, greenveggie. 

My needles are already in it.  I even left it out on the table to admire it everytime I walk by. 

The pics don't do the lining justice.  The circular needles are having a party with the lining while the knitted outside stands guard. ;)

I sent arco.iris her package on Saturday, and I can't wait until she gets it!  As soon as she does, I'll post pics!!  She'll get her second part as soon as I get her e-mail address!  I hope I can figure out how to put a picture of that on here...

Also, cutout's gift is chugging along and should be sent by this weekend (barring any problems)! 

Yay international gift giving!

ETA: I forgot to mention that I should be getting a package soon from batgirl and I'm super excited!

I want to check the mail every day now, not be at work...

I made this tote bag last night that i'm really proud of, so I wanted to post it. Since I made it with fabric that PinkMafia gave me for this swap, I thought this would be an ok place to show you all how awesome this fabric is.


I didn't get a pic of the lining, but it's dark green, and it has a poket made from the dot fabric.
thanks PinkMafia!

Grrl82 go her package and asked me to post pics of it, so here goes.

She wanted a stenciled shirt with marching band humor, and this is what she got  ;D :

My lame-o wrapping job:


Shirt Front:


Shirt Back:


And I sent her some chocolate, too.  She just switched schools and hates her new school.  And everyone knows that chocolate fixes everything, right?  ;D

Glad you like it, Ashley!

akredhead received the package I sent her of buttons and a couple zippers and she asked me to post my pics.  I only have one and now I'm wishing I had gotten close ups of some of the buttons.  They have neat textures and designs.

I have this really great thrift store near me that selss all kinds of sewing/knitting/etc supplies.  They have GRIPS of buttons.  They're all nice and some are pretty unique.

There's so much cool stuff going around in this swap! I keep adding things cause everything is so nice! I just sent out a few packages, I hope my partners enjoy them! What a fun swap, thanks for organizing this, Hertrigger! :-* This one must be a full time job on its own!  :o


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: TheDishclothQueen on January 10, 2006 12:38:30 PM
I definately cannot imagine organizing something this huge.

Does anyone else find themselves wanting to make something for everyone?  I just keep reading people's list and I think, "Hey, I could do that for them!"  But then I realize that I've already sent out enough things to get something like 8 more in return before I have to make something else. 

But it's still tempting.  I'll probably still cave.  :D


Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: batgirl on January 10, 2006 12:53:22 PM
Yes! I know what you mean! It's so fun to either be challenged to create something, or have a reason to make something you normally wouldn't, or to make something you love, knowing someone wants it. I love swaps!

I do have to confess the slogan wasn't my idea.  When I was a freshman in college, I did marching band.  Each section got their own shirts made up; these were ours.  But I've always felt it was a damn catchy shirt!

Thank you!  I really like picking things that are going to be challenging for me, so that is stretches my limits.  Not to mention, since I've given away stuff to pretty much anyone here who will take it from me, its really nice to have someone to give stuff to who will really appreciate it.   Not to mention, you never know when some little talent will match up with someones wish.  I love that part!

Yay!  I got Muppets and fairy marble magnets from VW69 today.  They are so totally cool.  They even came in a neat Muppets decorated box.  Its so cool I almost don't want to take them out and use them. 

 

I've been working super long hours at work and have not had enough time, in my opinion, for the stuff that really matters, like crafting, so they made my day.

it really upsets me that the simple PMing of an organizer to let me know youve sent/received is so difficult..

if you guys dont let me know when youve sent/received you arent going to get credit and may be considered a flaker.. there is 17 pages in this gallery, and in the last 2 pages i just found 2 people who never told me they received or their partner had even sent..

im not going to go through the 17 pages and look for people who dont bother to let me know.. because it takes about 2 minutes to let me know..

im really sorry if i sound bitchy, but this swap is ALOT of work for me. and for you guys not to even let me know, i dont even want to organize this anymore!

The ribbon stripes add a nice touch. I feel so special, I had never received mail from the UK before. Super cool!! Thanks again cutout!  ;D  ;D Oh yeah, she sent me a pretty pin too!  :D

i really hoped you would like it!  i was going to dye it for you, but i was taking so long to knit it and i thought "you know, it is quite nuetral it will go with a ton of outfits this way!"  i didnt get a pic of it...i just got batteries for my camera the other day!  anyhow----i reaaaallllly hope you like it.  i wanted to make sure that it could be used various different ways....hence the crochet chain lace thing that you can take off if you want it to be a scarf or wrap....instead of a poncho! 
i did have fun knitting it for you!

orange_sunset made me these gorgeous earrings - the picture doesn't do them justice :) i keep getting compliments on them

I received a great package form Goldfishgirl today. She picked my wish for a matching hat/scarf/armwarmers. The color is great. I love it, kind of an aqua blue. Shewent above and beyond and  also sent me another hat, some stickers and a bunch of stamps. Thanks so much Emily. I love everything. I am sorry I can't post pic's.

oops, I just realized that I put everything from my awesome swap package from berru away before I took pictures of it.  So you all will just have to use your imagination  ;D.  I asked for Japanese stuff and she sent a beautiful furoshiki cloth, a cute little chirimen stuffed rabbit wearing a kimono, tons of paper (some for origami), and chopsticks (in envelopes with origami dolls on them - one of my favorites).  Everything's perfect - thanks again!!!!

I received a beautiful knitting bag from Irid3sc3nt today. Here are some pics:

Exterior


Interior


And my kitty Duke was even in awe of its awesomeness!! I couldnt even get him to look up at the camera!


Hopefully the pictures turned out ok. The exterior fabric is a green marble background with brown designs and the interior is burgundy. She added lots of pockets for knitting needles and other odds and ends. AND she even used wooden handles!

Thank you so much irid3sc3nt!! The fabric is just my style. I really love it!  ;D

Whoo hoo!! I recieved the awesomest charm bracelet from batgirl yesterday! Here it is in all it's wonderfulness:

https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/6442charm1.jpg

It wraps around my wrist twice and a bit and has heaps of awesome charms like a bowling ball, swimsuit ladies, a ballerina, beer, ballet slippers, a wine glass etc. My favourites are the swimsuit ladies. Their swimsuits are painted so it looks like they only come up to just under their boobs... naughty! Unfortunately, 3 charms broke in the mail, including a royal soldier guy whose arms move!! I will have to see if I can drill a hole in them and put them back on.

She also sent me some other great goodies:

https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/6442charm2.jpg

Some US stickers, postcards, a cool 50's plastic surfer guy, which I am thinking of making a necklace out of, a scooby doo dog tag (makes me wish I had a dog! so I guess I will have to make my own collar out of it...) and CHOCOLATE!! which I scoffed as soon as the pictures were taken.... mmmm....

Thanks so much for the wonderful charm bracelet and other goodies batgirl!!



Title: Re: the 2006 wishlist gallery!
Post by: batgirl on January 18, 2006 07:27:40 AM
Yay, Jan on Ice! I'm so glad you liked it all, and that it arrived (mostly) intact! Sorry about the broken charms, though!  :(
I had so much fun making it. I always see those charms in this kooky local  surplus store but I never had a really good excuse to buy them! The topless bathing beauties crack me up, too. I imagine they were a factory mistake (or not!) but they're really funny. I had those VERY ballerinas on my birthday cake when I was 6! I think my Mom still has them! (32 years later...scary, huh?) The surfer guy was too big for the bracelet but too cool not to send, a necklace is a good idea, and they'd match! The postcards are from my hometown museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and I thought the stickers were fun. Very American but without any obnoxious flags or "we will rule the world" type stuff.  ;D And chocolate...well, chocolate! Yum! I tried to send flavors you may not have there, but I've never been to NZ so it was a bit of a shot in the dark! I'm so glad you liked it all! Thanks for posting so quickly!  :) Enjoy your goodies!

I had those VERY ballerinas on my birthday cake when I was 6! I think my Mom still has them! (32 years later...scary, huh?)

Heehee, they must be very popular cake decorations, because I had them on a cake when I did ballet when I was little, and each of us got to take one home. I think I could probably find it if I looked!
You guessed well with the chocolate - we don't have either of those flavours!
Thanks again!! ;D

Sorry it's taking me so long to take a picture of my fixings! I got a package of craft supplies for the Jan Uncon swap about the same time, and took everything out and played with it all...  :D Now everything's all mixed up.  But here's a picture of just SOME of the great things I got from DsgndByRJ.  Once I get everything organized, hopefully I can get a picture of some of the great stuff I make with my new supplies!  Thank you again :)

Well, I received my totally amazing- and I do mean amazing! lap quilt from zenocha on Tuesday.  After a couple of days of being sick and one when mum wouldn't let me go back to school, I was thrilled!

I requested a lap quilt in earthy colors- and I got this!

(my cat loves it too...)



There are three types of fabric making up the squares- an amazing brown paisley, one with squigglies and metallics and a green one.  The borders are done in dark grey.



And finally... the underside.  Wow. I love gnomes, and I love this fabric  ;D

This is my favorite of the gnomes positions, but they do all sorts of things- sit on mushrooms, wheel stuff around...



Thank you so much, Cheryl! I love it so much!

I have to share a funny story about my uterus. that is, the one I received in this swap! I was so excited to show my neighbors, who are med students. They invited me for dinner, so I burst in and yelled "Sarah! Look at my uterus!" Only then did I notice her Godfather, a minister, seated on the couch. I immediately shrieked "Oh my god! I just showed the vicar my uterus!" and turned redder than, well...something very red. He handled it very well, just calmly chuckled and said "What's that? A womb warmer?
Oh my.  :-[

That is so cool - didn't know what a "magic matter" was so had to go google it - that is even cooler!  Makes mats for your pic's but tracing around the pictures - very cute!  Need to find a pkg of "magic matter" noow <G>

I'm so glad you like it! I have TONS of stationary...and I buy a lot of it at thrift stores...so some of that stuff is pretty retro!

(I love the three fold notecards with puppies and kitties...so retro...so cute!)

If you have a pic...please post it...I didn't take a picture.

This pin cushion isn't actually my own idea... I got it from this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50015.0

and thought they were so adorable that I had to make them - I made one for me and one for Kasie.

I'm so glad you liked it Kasie!

I got my Knitting needle roll from Katiad today, who says it's not perfect but I think it is!! I love it, and it's my favorite color. It also came a real low point for me today so thanks it has cheered me up a lot. The pictures show the roll empty, the box I used to keep them in and how they look in their new home. Between this and my Denise needle case, my needles  are better organized than everything else in my house.

Super Geek received her clover scarf, and gave me permission to post my pics of it, so here goes.

A close up of the scarf, so you can see the colors:


Me not looking amused, because Mom insisted I hold the ends like that so everyone could see how long it was (it is wrapped around my neck twice):


And a dorky action shot, because, well, I'm dorky ;D


Please do not hold the horribleness of those pictures against me.

But I waited patiently... and I'm so happy! The 'i love the library" shirt is so cute and adorabley understated and perfect for me! It looks like it'll fit fine, and I'll wash in cold and gently to make sure it won't shrink! I've already posted the photo to all my online friends. *laugh* Now I just gotta show it off to everyone in shouting distance here! *grin* Thanks, Pink Dinosaur! Lots!

today i received my "relaxation kit" package from a very generous anonymous craftster from texas! i don't know who you are secret lady (or guy!), i wish i did though. this stuff could not have come at a better time - the past three weeks have been hell in a handbasket, and i've been super stressed/emotional. everything they sent is a great way to wind down, relax, and feel good. everything is going to be put to good use after i make this post  ;)
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO WHOMEVER SENT THIS PACKAGE!!!!!


  - a mini zen garden kit, including the zen garden as well as a book
  - a pack of dark chocolate ghirardelli squares
  - an awesome box of stash teas; 18 different chai tea packets!
  - a super cute new mug for sipping
  - and a relaxation excersize card, which walks you through relaxation techniques and breathing methods (which i will totally be using daily, haha)

thank you again mystery sender, your kind thoughts & efforts really really made my day!  :)

Glad you like it, Kale!

I so love it.  The dog had to sniff every inch of it, and she approves as well.  I think it cheered her up.  She's been sick lately and we don't know why, so it was so nice to get a fuzzy warm package.

The orange and beige bows are hand dyed silk from a local woman, I drool over them every time I go to the fabric store, and grab any excuse to use them!

 :) :) :)  I received a wonderful business card holder with some extra goodies yesterday from a mystery crafter!  I know that her real name is Monica Martinez, but I don't know what her craftster name is because she didn't include it in the package.  So Monica, please expose your crafty alter-ego!!

Here is the snazzy business card holder, complete with my new cards...hehe.  I love the label, pinkie promise, very cute!



She included some extra goodies too, she went to my website and printed out one of my horsie pics and made it into a button, and also my logo which is a mirror on the other side, and a button of my very favorite thing (well one of my very favorites) maps!!!  and it's the town where's she's from:

Today was my lucky mail day!  I also received a wonderful nerd embellished shirt from Bigmouth!  It has a logo over the heart of a covalent bond..hehe....schweeeet.  And apparently one of the many long equations is actually a scientific equation for "souring". Quite fabulous!  I was watching the Colbert Report the other night and he had the most excellent quote ever: "Unleash Nerd Fury"  hehehehe.  Now I need a button that says that.  

Sorry for the lack of ironing to the shirt, it was a loooong week...and well....after cracking open the bottle of wine, I just couldn't justify ironing a shirt!

I'm so excited that I received a bag made of bags in the mail today!  I must thank umbrellamaker for this excitement!


Here's a picture of the whole thing:


It has a front flap, which is hard to see in the photo.  This is a hard item to photograph, because of all the white.  The color scheme is predominantly white and red, with some blue and black.  I recognize Target bags in it, but I haven't identified the others (one type has red lettering and blue stars, and another is white with black letters).  The strap and the lining are flawlessly constructed (I really admire the even construction of the handle) from red flannel.  It's very stretchy, but she lined and sewed it in such a way that it's also strong and will keep its shape well.

Did you knit it, umbrellamaker?  Crochet?  I should be able to recognize the method, but the plastic bags really throw me off.

I'm so delighted.  I asked for "a bag or purse made of something that was never intended to be a bag or purse."  I adore clever things like this.  And I adore them even more when they're this functional and well-made.  

Thank you, umbrellamaker!

Since orangeabsinthe sent me that wonderful wonderful orange and aqua beanie hat that I love and I wear all the time... I sent her back some sewing notions, retro fabric, and a felt porcupine pincushion.  She received, so I'm posting some pics.
 
 
(It was supposed to look like a porcupine once the pins are in, of course, but I think it looks more like a mystery animal)

Knit on size 19 needles. I hope it stands the test of time! I made the lining a little bigger than the shell, because I imagine that the bags will relax and sag with time. And that soggy diaper look is never attractive....

I think the white with black letter (the under the flap chunk) are all Walmart bags. They really annoyed me because I thought they had a dirty, cheap look, much like WalMart. That's why they are on the underside.

Hey, umbrellamaker--I took the "bagbag" (I gave it a name) to work tonight, and it got comments from every person who saw it.  And it's just big enough to fit all my essentials and a hardcover novel.  As for stretch... it's nice that the flap is unlined, because it's good for the flap to stretch.  The lining will keep the body from stretching out (it doesn't seem to stretch at all when it's full).  And the strap is connected so solidly that I don't think carrying weight in the purse will cause any problems.  Thanks again!

from which, I made these:


(I ran out of green, but fortunately had some blue in my stash)

Wow I got an unexpected surprise today from Bigmouth the sneaky little thing!!!!  She had already fulfilled my wish for a nerdy inspired shirt (pics posted several pages back on this thread) and she sent me a PART 2 to my wish!!!!  And it's awesome!!!  I recently have had a new personal slogan inspired from the Colbert Report, of "Unleash Nerd Fury" (you might have seen the great buttons that bobolink made me) and Bigmouth made me a t-shirt that says that on the front!!!! I LOVE it! it's fantastic, truly, utterly, nerdtastic.  I almost cried with joy at how perfect the other gift was that she sent, it's....brace yourselves.....The Mathematics Calendar 2006.... ;D   It has a lovely mountain scene on the front of it (it's a wall calendar) and says at the bottom "discovering the power of mathematics"  I was speechless with how perfect this was for me!  Each month showcases a new math theme....for instance, March's theme is "numbers, the number line, and all that stuff"  hehehehe.  each individual day there is a math problem given for you to solve and the answers are in the back!  I love it all so much Bigmouth, THANK YOU!!!  I will try to post an action shot of me unleashing some nerd fury in my new shirt!

I just received a super-cute purse from redstar13 today!  It's black with various sizes of white polka dots, it has structured rectangular (sewn) handles, and the body is pleated to make it roomy inside.  I don't want to take pictures right now, because it still looks a little jet-lagged from the cross-country trip.  I'll post photos later, after it's rested and refreshed!  :)

Thank you, redstar13!  I love it!


EDIT:  Oooooh, I'm so appalled that it took me four days to update with a photo.  Here's the cute purse slouching against my wall, with some things inside it so you can sort of see the shape.  I wish my photos were better; instead, it looks like the poor thing has issues with her posture.  Anyway, here it is in all its prettiness:

The handles are stiff, but it feels like they're full of heavy interfacing, or something like that.  They're not totally hard.

Thank you, redstar13!  Thank you for making me such a cute purse!
